Candy Cane Oreo Fudge

Pin It Now!

I have been craving something chocolatey.  Like that luscious, smooth, melt in your mouth heavenly chocolatey.  After seeing a run of wonderful looking fudge recipes, I decided to venture into uncharted territories for me, and try my hand at fudge.  I did lots of research, called my mom and asked about her fudge recipe she has been using for as long as I can remember, and took to my favorite bloggers' sites.  What has resulted is kind of a mish-mash of parts of each of the recipes I saw, inspiration, if you will, for this recipe.

It turned out better than I could have ever hoped.  It was silky smooth fudge, studded with lovely little bits of oreo and candy cane pieces, and not overwhelming on the peppermint either.  Super easy to make, and just down right addictive.  



CANDY CANE OREO FUDGE
(Inspired by Something Swanky's Peppermint Oreo Fudge and highly adapted from Chocolate, Chocolate, and More's Milk Chocolate Fudge)

Ingredients:

Chocolate Oreo layer:
  • 3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 oz)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups broken up oreo cookies (left in reasonably large chunks)
  • 1/2 of a 7 oz. jar marshmallow fluff
White Chocolate Candy Cane Layer:
  • 3 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 oz)
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1 cup crushed peppermint candy canes
  • 1/2 of a 7 oz. jar marshmallow fluff
Topping (optional):
  • crushed oreo cookies
  • crushed candy canes
Directions:
  1. Line a 9x13 baking dish with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a medium sauce pan over LOW heat, melt the semi sweet chocolate chips with the can of sweetened condensed milk.
  3. Once this is smooth and completely melted, remove from heat, add the vanilla extract and the marshmallow fluff and stir until completely combined.
  4. Add the oreo cookie pieces and stir until evenly distributed.  Pour into prepared pan and spread evenly over the bottom.
  5. In another sauce pan melt the white chocolate chips with the condensed milk until smooth and completely melted.
  6. Remove from heat and mix in the peppermint extract and the marshmallow fluff until well combined.
  7. Add in the candy cane pieces and mix until evenly distributed.
  8. Pour this mix over the chocolate oreo layer in the baking dish, and spread in an even layer.
  9. If desired, sprinkle with crushed oreo cookies or candy cane pieces, or both.
  10. Place in fridge until set, about 4 hours or over night.
  11. Cut in to pieces and enjoy.  Keep refrigerated.
